Date: Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

AIM Independent Living Center and The Southern Tier Coalition for Disability Advocacy and Awareness will be hosting a meeting to facilitate the establishment of a Health Home primary applicant and a comprehensive provider network in the regional service area which will include Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chemung, Livingston, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga and Yates Counties.
Why is it important for you to attend?
According to the Department of Health there are 975,000 high cost / high need Medicaid enrollees which include 52,000 I/ Developmental Disability consumers, 209,000 Long Term Care consumers, 408,000 Behavioral Health consumers and 306,000 consumer who have Chronic Medical Conditions.
What does that mean?
(Per NYS DOH) “Health Homes for Medicaid Enrollees with Chronic Conditions:
New York's Medicaid program serves over 5 million enrollees with a broad array of health care needs and challenges. While the majority of Medicaid enrollees is relatively healthy and only requires access to primary care practitioners to obtain episodic and preventive health care, the Medicaid program also has several population groups who have complex medical, behavioral, and long term care needs that drive a high volume of high cost services including inpatient and long term institutional care.
Navigating the current health care system can be difficult for relatively healthy Medicaid recipients and even more so for enrollees who have high-cost and complex chronic conditions that drive a high volume of high cost inpatient episodes. A significant percentage of Medicaid expenditures are utilized by this subset of the Medicaid population. Appropriately accessing and managing these services, through improved care coordination and service integration, is essential in controlling future health care costs and improving health outcomes for this population.”
Includes establishing and enrolling consumers into Health Homes beginning November 1, 2011
